trail locations for Portland, Oregon

Didn't really care for this hike. Way to crowded ( just like it says) really muddy as well and the water was nasty color. Good for a one time hike.

Beautiful hike but trail is not clearly marked! Make sure you give yourself plenty of time before the sun goes down!

Absolutely Beautiful!! One of my favorite hiking places.

Nice, easy, not too busy. Serene, good for recharging on nature when you only have a few hours. Beautiful!

Great short trail. Not too muddy or crowded.

Walkers are respectful of one another and the surroundings. The area is gorgeous. The ground underfoot is kind. We walk the Arboretum trails every time we visit PDX.

This trail is not accessible year round. It is only accessible until October

Short loop with forest like features and an excellent view of Portland. Very accessible for hikers and bikers. Good place to sit and think.

This is a pretty trail to hike, especially early in the morning. Some areas have decent vistas but there isn't one high peak where you'll see everything.

Not at all what I expected. It's a large garden around a historical home with many paths throughout. Also, the information on this site/app is incorrect. Dogs are not allowed in the garden unless they're service animals. Which I would love to have known before I drove myself and my excited pup there for a much needed decompression hike on election day. Super frustrating. I probably won't return. Definitely not a fan of all these so-called "hiking trails" around Portland where you can't even bring dogs.

One of my favs.

Nice place to stroll, watch birds, people, and enjoy the gardens. Lots of places to sit. My 5 year old loved it. Don't go if you don't like watching people feed ducks. At least it was cracked corn and not bread.

Perfect directions to the location. Beautiful area. Thanks Oregon!! Highlight of the walk--at the very time my coffee was kicking in--BAM--a porta-potty in the middle of the trail...perfection!! Even tho it rained lightly while on this trail, I didn't get soaked because of the canopy of trees. It remained pretty damp and the sound of rain, surrounding me was calming with The Biggest leaves I'd seen in my life.

Beautiful park. Great trail through forested area. Got a good workout.
